My time at Timo's apartment was great. The room was as described, and Timo had coffee and tea packets and bottled water waiting. He was very easy to talk to, and helpful with making arrangements throughout the city. The location was really ideal as well.
The host canceled this reservation 14 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Timo was a very nice host. We only saw him half an hour (because he was also going on holiday) but he gave us a lot of tips and practical information about Berlin. The appartement was simple but very pleasant. It was also very clean, wich was nice. Only drawback was that the mattresses were very thin, so we put the mattresses of the two beds on one. I would certainly recommend the apartment of Timo is you're seeking a simple place to sleep in Berlin :)
Timo was very friendly and really nice host. Me and my mum spent here just a weekend and everything in apartment was exactly as described
Timo was a great host. He was very welcoming and he responded quickly to any questions. The appartment was basic but clean, in a good location. 2 points for improvement: the matrasses were very thin, they seemed to be more of a top layer instead of an actual matras. Also, you needed to hold the showerhead yourself while showering
The reservation was canceled 6 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Timo was WONDERFUL! We couldn't have asked for a better host. When I stupidly locked my purse and the key in the room, he came the minute he received the message. The apartment was spotlessly clean and perfectly adequate for our needs.
About the Host, Timo
I am a University student from Berlin-Kreuzberg When I'm not busy studying, I like to cycle through my awesome neighborhood, go to cafés and bars with my friends, and basically hang out and do nothing (an art in itself). I read a lot, English and German literature, politcal books on current affairs, etc. Music-wise, living in the electronic music capital of the world does eventually rub off on you, even if you've listened to Hiphop all your life. I've done a lot of travelling over the years, been to some awesome places in Asia, Africa, the Americas, but the older and therefore more sedentary I get, my favorite place in the world would have to be my hometown Berlin!
